Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes - in French!

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by liz_ford72, Apr 13, 2010.

  1. Hi,
    I am currently preparing for a lesson observation next week where I am teaching a class of KS3 children the body parts in French. I teach at a school for children with SLD.
    I was hoping to be able to show a video / audio clip of Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes in French on the interactive whiteboard, but am having big problems finding it anywhere. The only ones I have found are on You Tube and not really suitable as you can't tell what is being said!
    I was wondering if anyone else had come across something that could be appropriate, or if not, if any one knows of any alternatives that teach some of the body parts?

    I just do it myself and get the kids to copy me, then play Jacques a dit with by making them touch the correct body part. Saves making a powerpoint, and means they get to stand up and wave their arms about a bit!

    I also use the Alien language website (I can't remember the exact web address but you should be able to google it) The kids love it 'cos it's a bit gorey.

    If you can get your hands on the "Take 10" book of songs for primary schools, it's on it and the music is actually quite modern. I remember one year 9 boy doing some break dance moves on it.

    `Take 10 en francais' would be great for your needs- there are video clips too!
